Great local restaurant

Staring at a nearby hotel,. I have visited Beirut five or six times in the past five years. Great outside seating, entertainment after 9 pm. The menu is large with a great variety. I always visit when in Panama City

Have eaten here several times in past week or so. It is convenient to several hotels, especially the Panama Marriott. Service is very attentive and relatively short waits for meals to be served (allowing sufficient time for food prep, grill meats/poultry, etc) The schwarma is good, but unfortunately not great. My experience in many parts of the globe is that... More

Had a nice time at this popular local restaurant. They have good authentic Lebanese cuisine & the service is good too despite the fact that it is packed on weekends.....when the belly dancing goes non-stop for a few hours starting around 9 pm. No cover charge either!

We tried the Beirut because we love Middle Eastern food and spices. The restaurant decor was splendid, not too noisy. The open walls gave a vibrant metro feel, and the place was full of lively people. We shared the Machawi Beirut meat sampler platter. There was a bit of confusion about what came with the platter, so we wound up... More

The food here is very good with a huge variety of selections of meats, vegetables, and breads. Try to go on nights when they have the belly dancers, because it adds so much to the experience. We've eaten there with family, and with friends, and had great meals every time.

My wife and I had lunch on the outdoor terrace. We ordered salads and a combination plate of different Lebanese appetizers. I had a delicious mint lemonade. Very popular place for lunch and dinner and conveniently located directly across from the Marriott Hotel.

But why go to Panama to have Lebanese food? I like to eat local. But if you want Lebanese, these is a good place. You can even smoke a hookah.

The service here goes beyond bad to appalling. I honestly can't remember the last time I did not tip in a restaurant but I felt like the waiter should have paid me for putting up with him. I'd rather eat at Burger King.
